Body found in Hot Springs is identified

HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - Police in Hot Springs say a body found in the city is that of a Hot Springs man.

Cpl. McCrary Means told reporters Monday that the body was identified at the state Crime Lab as that of 20-year-old Joshua Williams.

The body was found Saturday afternoon by police investigating reports of a man lying in bushes in the downtown area just east of the Hot Springs Convention Center.

Police say there was a gunshot wound to the man's upper body and that there were cuts and bruises to his head - but a cause of death has not been determined.

Means said detectives have no suspects or a motive in Williams' death.
